Going to the weekend, it will attempt to top Avengers: Age of Ultron's $156 million opening weekend record in 2015 - the highest debut in that country for any Marvel film - and Monster Hunt 2.

The Avengers: Infinity War/ Fortnite Limited Time mode crossover kicked off earlier this week, and a day later Thanos was nerfed. The superhero mashup collected another $61 million at the box office, nearly doubling the combined take of the weekend's two big theatrical releases.

The box office will get into the full summer movie season swing when "Deadpool 2" opens next weekend to kick off a constant string of big releases. While most studios are smart to avoid huge tentpole films, there are actually two other films opening next weekend including BOOK CLUB, starring Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda.
Among holdovers, MGM and Pantelion Films' remake Overboard placed No. 4 in its second outing with $10.1 million after declining a narrow 31 percent.
